The absolute BEST investment we made for our wedding was hiring Uyen from Sassy Girl Weddings & Events. She not only made the process smooth and answered my questions at lightning speed, she was so friendly and likeable and easy to work with. I cannot recommend her enough. She made spot-on suggestions for vendors, handled all the contracts/negotiations, appeared at every vendor meeting, was SUPER professional, and ran the day with such precision and grace. It was amazing to know that this huge event was in such awesome, capable hands. She is worth her weight in gold!!! If you are lucky enough to book her, do it ASAP!!

Wow, Where to start. Uyen planned my sister's wedding the year before and my sister Sara's review doesn't do Uyen justice. You can never fully understand the VALUE of a wedding planner until you have to plan a wedding. I had talked to many of my friends who used planners and they were all disappointed on some level. Uyen was off the charts. She responded at ALL hours of the night. I am pretty sure she doesn't sleep. EVER. She was able to take my ideas and translate them into a wedding day and make sure it all made sense. She got me. She got Chris. She understood that our personalities were different and executed a wedding that was exactly what Chris and I wanted. She has a great book of vendors that she has a repoir with and they are amazing. From money stand point, she is worth every penny. She made me feel like I was her only client. And then I see her posting pictures of other amazing weddings she planned and was like.. whoa! She is the real deal. I am working with her to coordiate our company's 60th anniversary. I am addicted to using Uyen and look forward to bragging about her every chance I get.

We knew that choosing a wedding planner would be the most important decision we would need to make because we lived in Seattle and were getting married in Southern California in an estate we rented - completely not equipped with housing a wedding. We interviewed several planners and none of them clicked the same way. The wedding was constructed from scratch and Uyen walked us through each step. From the beginning we had an idea of what we wanted but no idea how to implement it. She made the planning process easy!! The wedding day was truly the most magical, perfect, whimsical day we could ever have imagined. We had many people tell us it was the most fun wedding they had been to!!

We would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding for sure!

If you want a truly personal experience and a unique wedding that fits you both perfectly, Sassy Girl Weddings is a no brainer!

Where to start. I think the best reflection was about two weeks after we had our wedding one of us said "I miss having Uyen around" and the other completely agreed. She was responsive, listened to our wants and needs. Tried to keep US within budget. I like to be in control of my parties and events but with Sassy Girl I didn't worry at all. NOT ONE BIT because I could say "ask Uyen". She even kept a secret throughout the entire planning when my wife decided she wanted to do the Hawaiian wedding dance as a suprise! I would get married all over again just to work with her.

Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings was the best wedding planner that we could have hoped for. We booked her based on a recommendation from a coworker.

We knew in general what we wanted for our wedding but weren't sure about the details. She made every effort to honor our requests, while providing suggestions on the details that we didn't think about or honestly know enough about to decide for ourselves. We also took on the epic task of planning our wedding in California from where we live currently on the East Coast. Having her based in southern California with a network of vendors that she could vouch for was essential to having the wedding be as stress-free and predictable as possible.

Uyen was always reachable quickly by email or phone. She was easy-going and pleasant to work with. Overall, she executed exactly what we wanted and even incorporated extra touches that we didn't even know we wanted! We would recommend her to anyone.

People always say that the Bride will not be able to eat, sleep, or remember much of her wedding day because there is too much to worry about the day of. I can vouch for a fact that because of Sassy Girl Weddings, I was able to eat, sleep, remember everything AND everyone who attended our celebration. Even my father was impressed and pleased that we had their crew to guide our Guests (420 of them), and till this day on he still talks about how much fun he and my Mother had because all they had to do was mingle with everyone, which is what a wedding should be :) Uyen specifically, got every single detail down since the beginning of planning (10 months in advance). When we did our walkthrough the week before the actual day, she brought up so many things that I had forgotten about, and what a HUGE relief it was to have the pieces of the puzzle finally put together :) The day of the wedding, all that my Husband and I had to do was eat, dance, smile, laugh, take photos, make a speech, and spend time with our guests. Did I mention that I got to eat?? I was afraid of eating too much and couldn't fit my dresses anymore haha And to top it off, Uyen was a doll to everyone. Our guests loved her. And although she took so much off our hands, it looked like she was having a ball too, and we're happy to see that! We can't thank her and her crew enough. Life is good! Thank you Sassy Girl Weddings!!

Uyen was our year-long coordinator for our Aug 2013 wedding and it was clear from the get-go that she was our perfect match. She was organized, full of ideas, and our personalities/styles were all in sync (food, music, design, etc). The entire process was smooth and she dealt with all the details logistics.

She quickly processed our style/mood board and recommended vendors that fit. Uyen has many existing working relationships, e.g. our awesome Dj Lux of Premiere Events, but she was perfectly willing to branch out and find outside vendors if they worked better. This is how we found our wonderful photographer duo, Llanes Weddings.

Vendor meetings and venue visits were scheduled quickly and efficiently (she even scheduled a 2nd venue trip for us). She accompanied us on every vendor meet-up and we were never left alone. There were never issues with paperwork and payments, even when points-of-contacts changed. The truth is, we ourselves procrastinated a lot and added to her stress (probably)... But Uyen was *always* available and patient, whether it was her past-midnight emails to us or middle-of-the-day calls to vendors. She answered her phone and her emails almost always immediately, despite her own heavy schedule.

Week-of planning was ramped up (as expected) but her day-of planning and staff were exemplary. All of her folks were constantly moving around behind-the-scenes and our interactions were exceedingly pleasant. Uyen was on top of every decision that had to be made (e.g. extending Photobooth time), and every transition from one event to another was always smooth.

Every single one of our wedding guests had only the best things to say about the wedding, the vendors, and how on-schedule everything was beginning to end. Even now, months after, we're still in afterglow from how everything went. We count Uyen as one of our friends and highly recommend Sassy Girl Weddings for your event; she will undoubtedly be a stress-reliever for you!

I knew that choosing a wedding planner would be the most important decision I would need to make - because I live on the East Coast and I was getting married in Southern California in the backyard where I grew up. I interviewed several planners - but not one of them made me feel like I was their only bride. The wedding was constructed from scratch and Uyen walked me through each step professionally, but so personally!! From the beginning I didn't exactly have a clear "vision" of what I wanted - I just knew I wanted a SUPER fun day! Uyen was an expert of digging deep to learn each of our personalities and incorporate it into our day - she thought of things I didn't even know I wanted! Her honesty and perspective was refreshing when I would have a ridiculous idea or begin to get overwhelmed. The planning process was so easy, but her true test was the wedding day. SHE PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS! It was truly the most magical, perfect, fairytale day I could ever have imagined. I had SO many people tell me it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended!! After the wedding, before my groom and I retreated to our hotel - she gave us an adorable wedding gift! I said to her, "So I know your job is to hide all the things that go wrong from me so I don't freak out, but I have to know - everything was so perfect...what went wrong?" She gave me a big hug and said "Absolutely NOTHING!"

My family and I would recommend her to ANYONE planning a wedding! My sister is getting married next year and she chose a date that worked for Uyen because she couldn't imagine working with anyone else!

My advice for future brides - there are plenty of wedding planners out there who will help you plan a beautiful (cookie-cutter) event, but if you want a truly personal experience and a unique wedding that fits your and your fiancé perfectly, choose Sassy Girl Weddings! You will NOT regret it!

Once I got engaged, I knew I had to find a wedding planner because I'm not good with details and dealing with stress. I went online and Google wedding planners in the Los Angeles area. I found several wedding planners, and then I began setting up meetings. Uyen was the third person I spooked with. Even though I had several other wedding planners still lined up to meet with, once I spoke with Uyen my decision was made. She asked if I lived in L.A., because she saw I was calling from a 610 area code. I explained to her that I lived in L.A. but my husband’s business was in Reading, Pennsylvania. She immediately told me that She was from Reading, Pennsylvania and that she grew up there. Once my I flew back to L.A. I met with Uyen, and the wedding preparations were on the way. She was perfect, not to pushy, and she bought me a lemon drop martini. It amazed me how knowledgeable she was about the Los Angels area, since she wasn't from California. From time to time I would become a "bridal bitch" and it never threw her off of her game. Uyen, and her company “Sassy Girl Weddings”, had more than several vendors that you can choose from. She had options ranging from DJs, photographers, florist, and etc. My husband and I really liked how she didn’t sway us to pick one vendor over the other. It was so hard to choose from all the different vendors because they were all first class. To sum Uyen up in a nutshell she was like a breath of fresh air. She came in and helped a lot. She didn’t “take over” my situation, but she definitely held my hand through out the entire wedding process. From picking out the wedding dress, to getting me headache pills when I had too much to drink before the wedding she was always there for us. By choosing “Sassy Girl Weddings” you will be giving yourself the biggest wedding gift ever, to say the least.

Thanks so much Uyen, you were the bomb dot com!!

Finding a wedding planner was not something we thought we needed, but while looking for a venue and vendors, things started to get complicated. After reading so many positive reviews on Sassy Girl Weddings & Events, I thought that we should meet her. On arrival to the coffee shop for our meeting, she greeted us as if we were close friends.
Uyen started to get to know us and what we wanted, she quickly started writing notes about our preferences and personalities. As we left that meeting, I knew I had to hire her. We were so glad we did! Uyen took over every little detail but always came to me for a final decision first. I never knew how hard a wedding would be to plan and all those tiny details never crossed my mind. Uyen is professional, prompt and has so many resources for vendors. There is a real advantage to having Uyen as a wedding planner. The day of the wedding, we absolutely had fun and had not a worry in the world because she took care of everything. She is also one to listen as a friend when I had wedding planning "drama." She has seen these issues arise numerous times in other weddings and she really helped me get through the whole planning process with my sanity.
I would recommend Uyen and her team to any bride getting married. I really wouldn't know what I would have done without her. Even family and friends commented on how professional she was in making the day a success. Thank you again Uyen!

Finding a wedding planner was not something we thought we needed, but while looking for a venue and vendors, things started to get complicated. After reading so many positive reviews on Sassy Girl Weddings & Events, I thought that we should meet her. On arrival to the coffee shop for our meeting, she greeted us as if we were close friends.
Uyen started to get to know us and what we wanted, she quickly started writing notes about our preferences and personalities. As we left that meeting, I knew I had to hire her. We were so glad we did! Uyen took over every little detail but always came to me for a final decision first.

This review is long overdue but I wanted to make sure I made one that would convey just how thankful I am to Uyen and her team.
Uyen made my Santa Monica wedding everything I hoped it would be. Early on I knew it would be a challenging process as I was based in Ohio and had very little time to be physically present in California during the whole planning process. I knew it was imperative that I pick the RIGHT wedding planner for me to pull this off. And I did.
I chose the full wedding planning service and I felt I got so much more than what I paid for. In the beginning I only had a vague idea of what my wedding theme would be. Uyen was able to tease out specific aspects of how I (really and truly) envisioned my wedding to be. She made really good, creative and relevant suggestions.
Uyen is extremely organized. Everything had a spreadsheet: pros and cons of a specific vendor, expense, etc. I had a ton of choices for the different vendors but she was able to help me decide the most appropriate vendor for my needs.
She is very responsive. If I had a question or concern, I did not have to wait a day to get a reply. She answered within an hour.
Uyen definitely goes the extra mile. For the reception, she made little paper flowers for my dessert buffet. And when I panicked because I realized the evening before the wedding that I forgot to get ribbons for my dessert jars she went and got them herself.
I think obtaining Sassy Girl Weddings & Events is one of the best decisions I made. Our wedding could not have gone as smoothly as it did if it wasn’t for Uyen and her team. Her attention to detail and her commitment to the bride and to planning makes her one of the best, if not THE BEST, wedding planner you could ever meet. I would recommend Uyen and Sassy Girl Weddings & Events in a heartbeat.

Sassy Girl Weddings & Events is simply the BEST wedding planning crew that any bride can ever have for their big day!!! I can't fully describe how detailed, intelligent, amazing, focused, and organized Uyen and her team is! I seriously would have been so lost without Uyen. She was the one who handled most of the logistics and planning, reminding me of many details that I wouldn't have gotten to. And the entire time, her professionalism was always so impressive. She was ALWAYS prompt with her emails and was so thorough with giving me all the information I needed.

What's great about Uyen is that she was very honest with her opinions and guided me through each decision step by step. Also, I think it helped that she had many vendors that she had past experience working with - so when it came to planning, meeting and ultimately to the big wedding day, all the details worked out smoothly and I can't say anything really went wrong with my day. And when there were times I felt flustered or stressed out, Uyen always knew how to help me and took away so much stress, especially during those few weeks leading up to the craziness. Her price is VERY REASONABLE - try comparing it to other wedding planners and you will be convinced. You won't get better service and attentiveness than with Sassy Girl as your wedding planner!!!

Uyen is a REAL wedding coordinator.

I've emceed and DJ'd over 300 weddings in the past ten years and more than half the time, the coordinator either has no clue what they're doing or is so passive that I end of taking over the wedding. Uyen and her staff, including her brother, are experienced and invest a lot of care and passion into their work. They prepare well in advance and pay attention to the details. The wedding I worked with Uyen at Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach was one of the best decorated, well orchestrated, classy, elegant, yet turned into a loud party, weddings I've been a part of.

Uyen and Sassy Girl Weddings and Events is the real deal. AND she's really nice! So many coordinators feel like they have to be a "witch" to be proactive. You can still be nice and get things done. In the end, its about making sure things get done with class and Uyen has that down. If you can get her as your coordinator, get her!

There is seriously not enough paper to write about this woman. Uyen is truly a gem and if you hire her you will quickly see why. I jumped into planning a destination wedding in Los Angeles, CA all the way from New York, and had no idea what I was in for. Despite my love for weddings, I quickly realized I was in over my head, and knew I was going to need a lot of help. So I went on wedding wire and was amazed to see all of the glowing reviews about Sassy Girl Weddings & Events and this super duper Wedding Coordinator, Uyen. I'm confident I will not be the first or last to say this, but can honestly say that everything others before me had said was 100% true. In fact, our bond was so special that I cried when she saw me in my wedding dress on the big day. I actually started my journey with Uyen before I even got engaged. My boyfriend and I had been talking about getting married so I figured I might as well get started (Type A=ME)!! Well, Uyen was super patient with me... I even warned her about my situation, but that did not deter her efforts one bit. She continued to dream with me and give me different ideas on how to shape my vision. We stopped emailing for a bit while I nervously waited for the ring and two months later... he popped the question!! Uyen jumped right back in as if nothing had happened and we exchanged emails almost everyday from that moment until the wedding. She is the hardest working person you will ever meet. We exchanged thousands of emails (probably) and she LITERALLY answered them at all times of the day and sometimes even night. Whenever I contacted her she would immediately get back with me and never hesitated to roll up her sleeves to brainstorm with me. She is well connected and made the planning process and "day of" virtually flawless. She has great style and a warm loving heart. She is everything I wanted and more for my big day!! I seriously couldn't have done it without her!!

Uyen is the best! I cannot even count the number of times when I've said to myself, to my husband, to family and friends, even to strangers on the street, how thankful I was to have Uyen as our wedding planner. We decided early on that we were going to get married in Southern California. But being that we live in New York, we knew that to maintain our sanity we needed a planner. Uyen and I clicked immediately when we first met, but besides being super easy to get along with, here is a list of other reasons she was a great planner:
1) Responsive- from the get go, Uyen was super responsive to all of my emails. When you are a crazy bride and have a random thought jump into your head at some odd hour of the day, it's wonderful to get an answer or feedback right away.
2) Organized- Uyen always knew what was going on when we met with vendors. Me... not so much.
3) Expert- When your time is money and there are a million wedding vendors out there, its crucial to have a planner who knows the business, has the connections, and will share her expertise. Not only did this save us from major headaches, but we never had to question whether or not we were getting a fair deal.
4) Patient- Uyen was so patient with us. I was incredibly indecisive throughout the planning process and would be adamant about something one second, then change my mind the next.
I never felt pressured or perceived annoyance from her.
I truly believe, seriously, that had Uyen not entered our lives, we would not have had our dream wedding. We would have freaked out when picking a venue and eloped in Vegas. So, really, we owe Uyen our first born... if she wants it.

I don't know if I will fully be able to describe how absolutely amazing Uyen is. Not only is she a kind, warm, generous and thoughtful person, but she is an incredible wedding planner who goes above and beyond for her clients. The first time I met Uyen, I absolutely knew she was the planner for us. She was so easy going and friendly, with extensive knowledge about wedding planning, that there was no way we could even think of hiring anyone else.

Here are just a few of my favorite things about Uyen:

1. She ALWAYS responded to my emails within the hour. Even if I emailed Uyen late at night, I'd get an email from her right away.
2. She is like a wedding encyclopedia. When she went with me to meet with our florist, she knew the names of, if not all, most all, of the flowers. She made suggestions and always offered great creative input.
3. She is one of the most considerate and thoughtful people I know. She went above and beyond in so many ways, and I don't know if I will ever be able to thank her enough.
4. Her ability to stay calm. The fire alarm went off at our wedding, about 10 minutes before the ceremony was to start. However, Uyen was so calm, that I had no need to worry. Everybody commented on how organized and sweet she was, and how she was so calm and relaxed.

My list could go on and on, but I don't have enough room. If you are considering hiring a wedding planner, know that hiring Uyen, will be the best decision for your wedding (aside from marrying your fiance). She is, by far, the ABSOLUTE BEST.

We highly recommend Sassy Girl Wedding & Events! We had the pleasure of working with Uyen to plan our wedding at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica, CA in the summer of 2012. We don’t live in the area and were looking for a full service wedding planner in Southern California. After reading all of her wonderful reviews on WeddingWire, we hired Uyen after only emailing her. From that moment on she made our entire wedding planning experience fun and stress free. She is easy-going, creative, fun, organized, detail-oriented and extremely knowledgeable about the wedding industry. She is also very responsive. Most of our communication was through e-mail and she always replied within 30 minutes, no matter what day of the week or time of the day it was. She has an amazing list of local vendors that she has established relationships with, all of which are also extremely professional and talented. She was also always looking out for our predetermined budget and for ways to save us money. Despite having a list of great contacts, she never pushed us into picking a certain one, but always let us choose for ourselves. In the end, our perfect wedding day was made possible because of her! We cannot thank her enough for her dedication to our special day.

We had the pleasure of working with Uyen who did full coordination our wedding in Santa Monica, CA. Our perfect wedding day was possible because of Uyen's EXCELLENT work. She made the entire process of wedding planning amazingly stress-free, incredibly fun, and so exciting. Definitely the best investment we made for our wedding!!

Uyen is OUTSTANDING. She's down to earth, easy going, always smiling, very approachable, incredibly sweet, and so knowledgable about the wedding industry. She took the time to help us think of unique details of our wedding, and at the same time helped us stay within our budget. Uyen has many years of experience in event planning, so she has developed great relationships with local vendors (which then also helped us save more money). I remember being newly engaged and intimated about the huge wedding industry. Uyen broke everything down to us so that we dealt with the most trusted, cost effective and talented local vendors. All the details of the wedding came together perfectly under Uyen's fabulous coordination. All our guests at the wedding said was that our wedding was the most organized, fun, and gorgeous wedding that they've ever attended!

One thing we especially appreciate is Uyen's responsiveness. Every email was answered in less than 30 minutes, sometimes even within 2 minutes. If I had any questions, Uyen was so quick to reply! She also gives great advice, is open to suggestions and always fun and easy to work with. She definitely made us feel like we were the only couple she was planning a wedding for (even though she has weddings booked almost every weekend!)

We definitely would recommend Uyen for wedding coordination! She's amazing!!! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding...it was a dream come true. Thanks Uyen!!

She is extremely organized, very personable and her attention to detail is outstanding. All of our guests were astounded by how easily everything flowed throughout the night. The wedding party felt very assured w/ her present that they knew exactly what to do and when to do it. During the planning process all of our specific ideas came to fruition with out complication. Her relationships with all of the vendors we worked were amazing. She truly is an absolute must have for your wedding.

I don't think there are enough words in any language to express the deep gratitude and affection I have for Uyen but I'll give it a try. From the moment my now husband and I first met her thirteen months before our wedding at a Coffee Bean in Torrance we knew we had our girl. She was funny and full of great ideas about the vision and budget of our wedding. We immediately hired her as our full time coordinator.

Uyen is truly a consummate professional as well as being one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing in my life. She's extremely organized and detail-oriented which coming from someone as perfectionist as myself says a lot. She always answered my emails, no matter how crazy they were or at what hour they were sent, in a timely manner. She really made me feel like I was her only client.

She also has an amazing list of vendors so she's really able to match you with the ones who best suit you or the style of your wedding. Her relationship with these vendors is so incredible that in our case it translated into savings with our venue, dj and photo booth as well as some beautiful additional lighting inside our reception that was gratis! I could go on about many other instances of her finesse during the wedding planning process so let's just say she's a miracle worker and she'll have the answer to any questions or concerns you have.

Uyen made my dream wedding come true. Everything came out perfectly which was no small feat considering we had one of the largest setups for a wedding she'd ever seen. The one small problem we had she dealt with so quickly, calmly and graciously that it became a mere hiccup. Our families and ourselves were inundated after the wedding with calls and emails about how it was the most beautiful and fun wedding people had ever been too. She gave me a Platinum Wedding on a more reasonable budget.

If you're looking for a wedding planner please do yourself a favor and don't look any further - Uyen is your girl or as I like to call her "my angel" and she can be yours too.

Huggs to you Uyen!

I originally thought that a wedding planner was probably unnecessary. However, my experience with Uyen has changed my mind. Uyen always quickly responded to my questions and she coordinated with all of the service providers (lighting, caterer, restrooms, valet, DJ, etc.) so that we had the details worked out in advance and everyone showed up on time. Uyen has access to great service providers and was also happy to work with any other provider that we wanted to use. She was professional and a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her.

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe Uyen. She is the BEST. Just the best. From the moment we met Uyen treated me as if I were her only client. Every email (I mean every single one, and we exchanged well over 200) was answered within an hour. I'm not kidding. This woman is incredibly responsive. I love her. She is also insanely creative, funny, organized, easy to work with, kind, generous, understanding, calm...did I mention responsive? =) I hired Uyen as a full package planner. We pretty much knew which location we wanted, but just to humor us Uyen started off by taking us to a few places we hadn't considered. Ultimately we decided to go with the place we had found before we contacted Uyen, and she did an incredible job. My wedding was PERFECT. I literally have no complaints (other than that I didn't get to eat enough but that was my fault). If anything went wrong I do not know about it, which is pretty much the same as nothing going wrong at all. The minute I get my pictures back I'm emailing them all to Uyen so she can put them on her website. People need to see what I'm talking about. Everything was gorgeous. From the flowers, to the linens, the lighting..just gorgeous. Uyen helped me work through so many decisions and was incredibly knowledgable and helpful so that in the end, most of my decisions were easy. She helped me with my budget so that I maximized every dollar I spent. While most people think that a wedding planner may be out of their budget, I have to insist that they contact Uyen. Her prices were incredibly reasonable for the amount of time and effort she spent helping me. I am a full time practicing attorney (the kind that doesn't make as much $$ as you would think!) and I have a 2 hour commute everyday. I had such little time to plan a wedding and Uyen was indespensible. For 10 weeks before my wedding I was engaged in back to back trials and had almost zero time to commit to anything wedding related. Naturally I was at first panicked that I wouldn't be able to attend to any last minute details, but knowing that Uyen was there really helped put me at ease. Any small thing that came my way I just sent to her and she took care of it. I had multiple emails from my guests requesting special meals because of thier allergies and dietary restrictions. Uyen took care of everyone. I am so grateful that she was with me every step of this process. I cannot imagine having done any of it without her. Not only is she a MAGICIAN of incredible weddings, she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I got married 9 days ago, and I already miss her! I wish this review had more than five stars because she honestly deserves at least twenty. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Uyen!

Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings & Events was purely, supremely AWESOME for our wedding. She was so incredible, in fact, that our friends, after hearing about how great she was, furiously fired their own wedding planners who couldn't compare, yet cost so much more! By the time I found Uyen, I had already interviewed several other planners. They were all nice, but none of them had the drive, creativity, and responsiveness that Uyen had. I still remember a whole year ago, I sent in a request through her website and within 1 hour, she wrote me 5-6 pages of ideas for my wedding with such minimal input. Her ideas were beautiful, classy, and very budget-friendly. She made my long distance wedding planning from Portland a real breeze. She looked over every contract (we used the full service) and even spent hours going over how to fill out one contract with a very particular, strict venue. She is also so well connected that we were able to get discounts and special attention from vendors and even the park rangers at our venue.
Not only is Uyen one of the most resourceful people I know, her attention to detail is unparalleled. Our wedding, as complicated as it was to set up in an estate setting went without a single hitch! She's also a very thoughtful person--she recognized my birthday and other important milesones and would send me little encouraging e-mails to help me from stressing out. At times, I felt that she was more like a bridesmaid than a wedding planner. I was really sad to say goodbye to her at the end of my wedding, actually, and I felt that we had a true friendship by the end of this process.

My wedding was so much better than I dreamed it would be. I'm a super anal person, being in the medical profession, and I felt like I finally met my match. I could count on Uyen because she was on top of everything and there was no detail that would slip through the cracks. She was also very prompt and speedy in her reply emails. I must've emailed her a million times throughout the process and every single one was attended to within a span of 24 hours. I had my dream venue, dream ceremony, and we got to incorporate plenty of our personal touches that our guests really picked up on. My husband and I have already referred our friends to Uyen because we are SO confident in her skills. Uyen referred to us the BEST photographers ever, that not only made us look like we stepped out of a magazine, but had amazing character and charisma.

She deals with other vendors with utmost professionalism and tact. We had a slight issue with the limo driver and she was very quick to give them feedback right away. It's actually hard for me to believe that she was working on other couples' weddings at the same time because I felt that she invested 110% of her time and energy into ours alone!

If I could get married again, which I hope I never will, I would do it all over with Uyen. She was honestly the best wedding planner and I would send every single one of my engaged friends to her. You will definitely love having Uyen Nguyen of Sassy Girl Weddings as your wedding planner. We consider ourselves lucky that she was available on our wedding weekend. She will NOT let you down!!!

I am so glad that I hired Uyen as my wedding coordinator! At first I wasn't going to hire one, since I had already picked my venue and photographer and didn't want to spend extra money on wedding planning. As time went by, I realized I really could use an expert opinion and someone to look out for me on the actual wedding day. Uyen came all the way to Torrance to meet with me before I even signed with her. She talked over ideas and gave me tons of valuable information. I could see what a responsible and sharp-minded person she was - just the kind of person I would want handling things for me.

I signed up for a partial planning package, so Uyen helped me with the caterer and florist. I also got her recommendations and advice with most of my other vendors (makeup and hair, DJ, rentals). Sometimes I was uncertain about some vendors, but I trusted Uyen's opinions and it worked out.

Moments I was ESPECIALLY glad I hired Uyen:
1. During the wedding rehearsal, when Uyen ran everything and made all of my husband's family feel comfortable by speaking to them in Vietnamese!
2. During the ceremony, when my mom and mother in law couldn't light the candles, and Uyen stepped in and got the lighter working.
3. After the ceremony, when she stepped up to me with a big smile and said, "You did it!!"
4. At the end of the night, when she gave me a Tastea drink she had picked up just because she's THAT nice.
I definitely recommend Uyen and Sassy Girl Weddings and Events to anyone who wants an intelligent, capable planner.

More important than all of the other metrics this site tracks, sassy girl weddings is exceptional because of how personalized the service is. It's the x factor which really "made" our wedding! Also, rating uyen's responsiveness as a mere 5 stars doesn't do her justice. Sooo fast! Since our wedding, we've had numerous guests ask us who our wedding planner was... Her work speaks for itself!

Her vendor and venue suggestions were all also great and everyone very professional. Our wedding planning went stress free and perfect from beginning to end and stayed right on budget. Couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner. My husband and I highly recommend her!

It has taken me awhile to compose my thoughts about my experience Sassy Girl Weddings and the gem that Uyen is and what hasn't already been said about her. Future Brides, we always hear words of wisdom from other brides such as "Just elope...hire a coordinator...hire a videographer." If you are reading this, then you probably already know the merits and necessity of having a day-of-coordinator or wedding planner. But Uyen is so much, so much more. My advice to you: Enjoy and savor the EXPERIENCE of planning your wedding and choose UYEN! It's true what they say--the day goes by so fast, and you're spending a year planning for it. It is being present and having fun during the journey that gets you there that makes it all the more worthwhile and magical, and I couldn't have done it this past year without Uyen. From emailing each other about shoes, figuring out which photographer best suited my fiance and I, and cheering when a contact was closed--I mean, really, who else was going to "get it?"

I had an interesting situation being in the Bay Area, but having my wedding in SoCal, my fiance being abroad, and all my bridesmaids (2 of them being first-timers) and family far away. Uyen was literally the only person who I could rely on 100% for any input or advice about anything. I knew from her first email she would be it--so bubbly and personable, already giving advice on the pros and cons of venues. In person she's a calming force who clearly has it together. She recommended the best vendors, will always give you insightful, well-thought out advice when asked, and will be your champion and cheerleader--and this is all before the actual day! She is unequivocally the best at what she does, and if you're a sassy girl or want to be one, then Sassy Girl Wedding & Events is definitely the way to go.

My partner and I hired Uyen right off the bat after meeting her. We hit it off right away and we made a very good team. We purchased her full package so she was there every step of the way. Uyen was always available to answer all of our questions and concerns, even our silly ones. She put both of us at ease and made sure that we knew everything that was going on between her and our vendors. She helped negotiate with our vendors so that not only did we maintain our budget, but Uyen actually paid for herself by getting us a venue that usually quotes others triple the price of what we got it for, due to her working relationship with them. We couldn't have been more happy.

At the wedding, everyone of our guests were amazed at how smoothly the night progressed and how lovely everything was. I also had couples ask me for Uyen's number so that they can use her services when their time comes.

We love Uyen and not only did she plan our wedding, she has become our friend.

I found Uyen from my friend who is also getting married and I am SO VERY HAPPY that I hired her as my day-of wedding coordinator! Even my now hubby who initially claimed we could do everything on our own now whole heartedly agrees that hiring Uyen was the best wedding decision we made. 
I got married 2 weeks ago and we are still getting compliments from family and friends on what a happy and fun event it was and how smoothly everything flowed!
And believe me when I tell you my wedding was very complicated - I am Chinese and my now hubby is Indian, so we had a Chinese-Indian infused wedding with 300 guests and a TON of vendors since our venue only had tables and chairs and nothing else - we had to rent and outsource everything. Uyen is familiar with both Chinese and Indian traditions, and was able to successfully manage our guests and our 10+ vendors!
Uyen is also INCREDIBLY responsive. Uyen is super organized and on top of everything. On top of that, Uyen is so sweet and warm that you can't help but love her!
Uyen knows EVERYTHING about weddings - she even know table cloth sizes by heart and called out things that we would not have thought about on our own (e.g. we hired a caterer but did not realize that we needed to rent chafing dishes, etc.).
I can’t recommend Uyen enough!! Hiring her will give you sound peace of mind and a flawless wedding.

My husband and I were very blessed to have met and worked with Uyen. She is such a wonderful person and I say this like she's one of my own friends because that was the first impression we got from the time we met her. She is so gentle and sweet. She had a very welcoming personality and if there was anything I learned about planning my wedding, the comfortability between you and your vendors are one of the most important things to make your planning go as smooth as possible.

She is easy going and makes herself available to you like you're her only client. She gives you the best advise and she made us realize a lot of things we didn't know about the wedding. She helped us through a lot of tough decisions. She is very detailed and doesn't leave anything out. You ask her to explain something, she really helps you understand. She gives her opinion when you ask for it. She's really just there for you.

I was also very pleased that the venue we chose to have our wedding was a venue Uyen was very familiar with. She suggested many things that really worked out well for us including having the chef at the Ebell of Los Angeles customize a special fusion menu for our dinner. She was also very familiar with my hair and make up artists so it was really convenient for me to trust her and the rest of my vendors because they all knew each other professionally.

Thank you Uyen. I cannot say it enough how great you are! Thank you for helping us make our dream wedding come true.

I would've been a complete mess if it wasn't for Uyen. She was the ideal planner I was looking for. I have to admit, I was not only a little apprehensive to hire a coordinator but finding one I didn't know personally was a huge challenge. I said to myself, "Why would I get one when I can do everything myself?" Man, was I wrong. On top of a crazy work and school schedule and half of my day dedicated to a long commute, I started to panic. People I thought I could trust including family who felt very comfortable with inviting whomever, forgot to consider the work and time dedicated to planning a wedding. The dream I had looked forward to since I was kid was starting to become a complete nightmare and I wanted OUT! After months of research, Uyen was on my top 5 list. Based on her references, they spoke highly of her work, professionalism and her prompt response which ultimately solidified my decision. She was very personable and it made the wedding planning that much easier. She thought of everything and was always 10 steps ahead of me. Now that's the sign of a GREAT coordinator. After we came back from our honeymoon, many of my guests raved about the wedding. Pick Uyen. You won't be disappointed!

Working with Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings was easily one of the most rewarding and enjoyable aspects of the wedding process for us. Hiring a wedding planner is one of those things that sounds like a luxury, or something you do when you're having some huge, expensive, over-the-top wedding. That was definitely not us: planning and making everything ourselves, ON A BUDGET, for a ceremony and reception of around 65 people. Neither of us would consider ourselves a “wedding person”. Nevertheless planning a wedding can be a very difficult, involved and often stressful process, and it's important to have somebody with solid experience and good judgment to back you up. We knew what kind of experience we wanted our guests to have, what ideas worked for us (or didn't) that we'd seen in the blogs, the websites, or our friend's weddings, and we had our own personal touches that we wanted to include. However, we were at a loss as to how to bring it all together and make it all work, and who would be in charge of making sure it all went smoothly on the day itself: who would take care of the myriad details and potential problems while we were busy getting married!

Both of us agree that hiring Uyen was the best spent money in our budget (the only other hires that came close were our wonderful photographer and awesome DJ—except that it was Uyen herself who referred them to us in the first place!). She is not only friendly and a delight to work with, but combines a fun, hip, creative sensibility with consummate professionalism and devotion to her clients. What strikes you when you work with Uyen is that A) She loves what she does, and B) She's very, very good at it. One the one hand she's brimming with creativity and enthusiasm, eager to hear your ideas and contribute her own. On the other hand she's very well-organized, with a solid grip on the details and logistics that go into planning and running an event like this, and she gets back quickly to your phone calls and emails.

We made use of her “Week-of Coordination” Service, i.e. consultation during the planning stages, plus management of the day itself. Such a small-sounding description, but it covered so much! Advising us during the venue selection process, for example, and then walking through our selected venue with us and helping us see the all possibilities, as well as potential problems. Aside from her excellent referrals for any vendors we hadn't yet found, she helped us immensely in our dealings with ALL our vendors. Especially our sometimes-difficult caterer! Uyen remained in the loop and supported us while we went back and forth over pricing and menus with them through email and in person, often taking a direct hand in dealing with them, and really helping us find a solution that worked for everybody. Then she persistently pushed for a tasting so we would know exactly what we were getting. That wasn't even something we'd considered, but it not only identified and headed off additional unforeseen issues, it added immensely to our peace of mind. And when the caterer finally stepped up their efforts in response, the results were beyond our expectations!

Even if you've done the legwork, looked at the magazines and the bridal blogs, come up with your own creative ideas and have a vision for what you want, if you're anything like us: it may not be enough. That, and you're completely daunted to boot. You would do yourselves a huge favor to have somebody who knows what it takes to turn that vision into a reality; who can guide you through the process, keep you grounded, and support you when the going gets tough. When it comes to that, you won't find anyone better than Uyen.

Once I was engaged, I knew I needed a planner. I wasn’t one who dreamt of her wedding as a little girl, so I needed guidance. I came upon Sassy Girl Wedding and Events and liked what I saw. Since the first email I knew I wanted to work with Uyen. After our first meeting she had an idea of what I wanted and from there she was able to help me declutter all the ideas that I came across throughout the whole wedding process. She recommended awesome vendors that were within our budget and that we liked. Her correspondence to all of my questions were always answered pretty much in minutes (thank goodness for Blackberry’s!) She was always early for meetings and very professional. She also has a great sense of style and always had ideas that were out of the ordinary. After all of the planning was over, our big day had arrived and everything came out as planned! We were amazed to see how everything all came together and our wedding day exceeded our expectations. Not only did we have the best time of our lives, our guests enjoyed every minute of it. During our honeymoon, we reminisced about every detail and all we could think about was how memorable the day was. After three months of being married, my husband still asks me if we can get married again! Huggs to Uyen and her team for making our vision a reality! Thank you!

My new husband and I just adore Uyen. He and I agree 100% that hiring Uyen was the best decision we made during the whole wedding planning process. My husband and I were planning a Los Angeles wedding from Seoul, Korea and we needed some help. I went through projectwedding.com reviews and emailed a few planners. Uyen was the only one that was SUPER responsive and friendly. I had a million questions for her because I was unable to meet her in person and she responded to all of my emails asap.

After we signed the contracts we spent about a full year planning our wedding. Uyen became my hands, eyes, and ears. She took care of EVERYTHING for us. Not once during my planning from abroad did I regret my decision to go with Uyen. She became more than a planner to me. I don't know how you won't be able to become quick friends with her. She is just the sweetest. Anyway, our wedding day came and passed and we had a ball. We have only wonderful memories of our day. I know as a matter of fact that I couldn't have had my dream wedding without her.

As I read through the other reviews, I keep thinking what other special things I could say about Uyen. Other people describes her pretty well, but I am from different country and there are only few words that I know.

But I do know I chose the right person when I heard my mother who doesn't speak English somehow communicating with Uyen at my wedding. My mother and my entire family directly from Japan absolutely loved her!

Above all the professionalism, you can really tell that she does it from her heart. We became good friends after my wedding. She is just a kind of person you don't want to miss out in your life. Believe me, she will make your most special day even better:)

We can not say enough awesome things about Sassy Girl Weddings and its proprietor, Uyen.
She was on the ball, prompt with emails, responses, reminders and details. She went above and beyond what we expected and our wedding day went off without a hitch...she made what could of been a very stressful day, into one of the most stress free days we have ever had. As we look through the wedding photos, we realized that all the details and timing were perfect! And probably the second most important thing that happened in the whole wedding planning time (besides actually marrying my wife) was that we made a new and dear friend in Uyen! She helped us make our day so very special and now we are proud and happy to call her our friend. (Thx Uyen!!)

We worked with Uyen for our wedding this past month and chose the "week-of" coordination package. From the moment we met Uyen, we knew that she was going to make the wedding great! She was so friendly, organized, helpful, resourceful and full of great ideas. Even though we only had the week-of package, we were able to email her with questions right away and ask for vendor references. Because of Uyen, we were able to assemble a great team of vendors on our wedding day - we loved each and every one of them! In terms of the wedding day itself, Uyen executed everything flawlessly. If something went wrong, I didn't hear about it. We really appreciated how she was able to oversee everything so efficiently while still being pleasant and friendly to everyone. Uyen made our wedding day go by without a hitch. We trusted her with all the details (and all the big things too) and everything looked great! We would definitely recommend Uyen! Thank you, Uyen for all our help!

My now husband and I hired Uyen as our full wedding planner for our July 2010 wedding. After our initial meeting, I knew that Uyen would be perfect for us. She’s creative, sweet, and extremely organized. My husband and I both agree that hiring Uyen was one of the best decisions we made. From choosing the venue to helping us figure out the centerpieces, she made wedding planning so much fun.

Throughout the wedding planning process, we exchanged hundreds of emails/texts and had many vendor meetings. She was always patient and very responsive. I bounced a bunch of ideas off of her and she always tried to help our vision come to life. She also made excellent vendor recommendations and coordinated all of our meetings.

The couple of weeks leading up to our wedding was extremely hectic as we had quite a few problems with our venue, but Uyen took care of everything. She was so thoughtful and tried to shield us from all the issues so that it wouldn’t stress us out. On the day of the wedding, she was a savior. She was so prepared and planned every detail. My husband and I were able to enjoy our special day without a worry.

We cannot thank Uyen enough for all she’s done for us. She is a total professional and in a class of her own. Even though we hired Uyen as our wedding planner, I felt that she truly cared about us. We got to know Uyen pretty well over the course of wedding planning and I can honestly say that she is a beautiful person inside and out. I highly recommend her services. Thanks again Uyen! Love, T + H

Uyen was amazing in helping me out with our wedding. I (the bride) am currently in graduate school. I have a busy exam schedule and realized fairly early on in my planning that we were going to need help... and a lot of it. Anytime the stress of school was too much she was always on top of the wedding planning helping me make decisions much easier. She is experienced, level headed, and amazing at her job. Her vendor list was fantastic and my husband and I could truly have not wished for a better wedding, especially at the graduate school student loan budget we were working with. She helped us get everything we dreamed of and more for our special day, all the while working away quietly like a ninja in the background. We are so glad we hired her for our wedding, and would do it again in a heartbeat if we weren't already married! I cannot emphasize enough how phenomenal she is.
Thanks for everything Uyen!

I love love love Uyen Nguyen of Sassy Girl Weddings and Events! We hired her as our "week of coordinator" 6 months before our wedding and she was so great to work with. Every email I sent her was promptly answered, she provided me with great referrals and awesome vendors. She also helped me stay relatively within my budget which was hard to do :)

The week of the wedding I was feeling the pressure and Uyen was there to help me communicate with the vendors and get organized for the big day. Our friends and family were so impressed by her and was raving about her even after the wedding.

I can't say enough about Uyen. You can tell she loves what she does and it reflects in her work. We've even become friends after the wedding.

We wanted to book Uyen immediately after meeting with her in person. She spent 5 months as our wedding planner and we couldn't be happier. Uyen is extremely organized, detailed, and prompt to respond to our questions. She worked so hard to negotiate with all the vendors. In the end, we stayed within budget but our wedding looks like we had no budget.

Our guests really enjoyed themselves and raved on about the outstanding food and decor. And the best part was, we enjoyed our day as calm and stress-free as can be. We appreciate that Uyen treated us more like good friends than as clients. Uyen is the best event/wedding planner in my opinion and it was such a pleasure working with her.

Even though we didn't end up using Uyen's services due to the fact that we didn't end up having a wedding planner, Uyen offered some vendor suggestions in an email that were fantastic, specifically our photographer Adrienne Gunde. The fact that Uyen didn't have to suggest any vendors since we hadn't hired her and she still did speaks to her professionalism, quality of services, flexibility, and her desire for wanting brides to have the best wedding possible. I'm sure if had hired her she would have been great. Thanks much Uyen!

The fact that Uyen didn't have to suggest any vendors since we hadn't hired her and she still did speaks to her professionalism, quality of services, flexibility, and her desire for wanting brides to have the best wedding possible. I'm sure if had hired her she would have been great. Thanks much Uyen! Read less

The best advice I have ever gotten from other friends and family who recently got married: ask someone else to run your wedding. My husband and I had done everything from booking the reception venue, ceremony, linens, chairs, cake, colors, etc. We asked Uyen to help us on the day of just because I wasn't sure who to put as the contact person when all the rentals were being delivered and that really stressed me out. She didn't just help us on the day of, she helped us for the entire week before the wedding. I know there are other planners out there that only offer "day of" services, but how much can he/she do just in 1 day?

I have discovered that the week before the wedding was the most stressful time during the entire planning process. Why? Because you'll be too busy finalizing the guest counts, seating arrangements, programs, place cards, etc. I still can't believe how much Uyen had helped us. While we were going crazy with all guest related issues, she had confirmed all our vendors, set up a time line of when each one of them were to arrive, and when things were to be done by. She was also able to assist us with the seating arrangements and forward all the information the hotel required 3 days before the wedding.

On the day off, she was the first one at the church to line us up and hand out our programs. The limo company was late and Uyen was able to get us a refund from them. She also set up the reception area just as how we pictured it (actually even better than we pictured it). I screwed up on the number of corsages I had ordered from the florist and Uyen was able to work with the florist to get that issue resolved.

I was not stressed out at all on my wedding day thanks to Uyen! She really took her time to get to know me and my husband and how we envisioned our wedding to be. What I loved the most about Uyen was how fast she responds back to you. I'm the kind of person needs instant gratification. I would email Uyen and couple of minutes later, I'd have a response - even if it was at midnight! I highly highly highly recommend Uyen from Sassy Girl Weddings & Events.

After meeting Uyen for the first time last December, my fiance and I knew we had found our wedding coordinator. We were looking for someone who was organized, prepared, and responsive. Uyen has all those wonderful qualities and more. Even though we only hired Uyen to help us the week of the wedding, she helped us through the entire planning process from start to finish. We probably sent Uyen hundreds of emails and text messages over a 10-month period, and she always responded to each and every one of them within a few hours (sometimes within minutes). You can always count on Uyen to be there when you need help or advice.

We had a very small wedding (50 guests) a few weeks ago at Mastro's Steakhouse in Costa Mesa. Uyen took care of everything that day. I was surprisingly calm and relaxed all day. We wanted to have an intimate wedding with our closest family and friends, and with Uyen's help we were able to accomplish that. She was simply amazing!

Thank you, Uyen!

Uyen is an exceptional wedding planner with an eye for sophisticated and modern wedding details that will undoubtedly exceed your expectations. Our wedding was in July of 2009. Our event is still the talk of town amongst our friends and family. The day of the wedding Uyen's recommended vendors were timely, and most importantly, showed up with quality beyond our expectations.

Uyen and her team executed our wedding day flawlessly to the specification we dreamed up together. Our specific theme was French Chic. From the amazingly beautiful flowers to the sharp and sexy linens, no one left our event without saying "WOW".

Uyen has a customer focus that enables her to get the best out of each couples taste and budget. We would highly recommend Uyen as a full or partial wedding planner as her quality exceeds her price and the working relationship is extremely pleasant as well.

I hired Uyen for coordination services from start to finish and I have to say that she was awesome! She's so great to work with and really catered to our needs. She worked very hard to keep things within our budget, but the day of the wedding, everything looked like we had no budget!! She helped make our wedding day even better than either one of us imagined. Uyen is very detail-oriented and organized, which made the wedding planning process as stress-free as it could be.

First, please let me begin by giving my zealous, unequivocal recommendation of Sassy Girl Weddings and Events! Hiring Sassy Girl Weddings and Events was the absolute best money we spent on our wedding!

We hired Sassy Girl Weddings and Events for full service wedding planning, design, and coordination in July of 2009. We spent a few weeks negotiating the terms of service with Uyen Nguyen (owner and designer of Sassy Girl Weddings and Events). Uyen was an amazing listener, always incorporating the items important to us. We felt secure in Uyen’s capable hands. In the months leading up to our wedding on May 24, 2009, Uyen was truly a blessing in our lives. As my husband and I were planning a multi-cultural, So. Cal wedding from No. Cal, Uyen was our eyes and ears – making excellent vendor recommendations, doing preliminary screening and vendor visits, and ensuring that all contracts were in good form (with appropriate price negotiation) before even presenting the contract to my husband and myself.

Uyen ensured that all of our wedding desires (both specific wishes and ‘conceptual’ wishes) were incorporated flawlessly into our wedding. She was able to execute all of these details perfectly as a result of (a) her ability to listen and ask necessary questions, (b) her amazingly prompt response time to inquiries (including late night e-mail musings about the ‘splash of red’ to be incorporated into the black and white theme and the Armenian text to be added to the wedding invitations and stationary), (c) her utter professionalism and great relationships (and mutual respect) with her suggested vendors, (d) her unending patience (but also no B.S. attitude), (e) her willingness to go that extra mile for her clients, (f) her easy-going, humorous, positive, and upbeat personality, (g) her keen eye for detail and amazing organizational capabilities, (h) her natural leader instincts, (i) her amazing capabilities and aptitude as a designer, and (j) her savvy business skills and intelligence. I will openly admit that I can be a difficult person to work with at times and never once did Uyen respond to me in a negative manner.

Uyen was truly grace under fire for the rehearsal and day-of coordination. Many people came to me after the wedding and spoke to me about how wonderful she was in ensuring the proper flow of everything. Also, family and friends commented on her cool composure and ability to deal with a few ‘sticky’ situations in a professional, appropriate manner. Interestingly, neither myself (as the bride) nor my husband knew any of these behind-the-scenes “issues” were occurring until after the fact, as Uyen took great care to not burden or stress us (or allow anyone else – friend, family, or vendor to do so)!

Sassy Girl Weddings and Events made all aspects of our wedding truly unique, memorable, and flawless – from the rehearsal dinner to the post-wedding clean-up….everything went off even better and more amazingly than my husband and I had ever dreamed possible. Thanks to Sassy Girl Weddings and Events we truly had an amazing, unique, memorable, fairytale wedding! In fact, one recently engaged woman at our wedding said that nobody who had attended our wedding would be allowed to come to her wedding as nobody’s wedding could never possibly live up to what Uyen had put together!

Thanks Uyen!!!

We are both organized but we knew that we needed someone to help with the wedding. After speaking to three different vendors we realized there was way more detail then we thought and we needed more help. Due to our tight budget we hired Uyen for only a week of service. However, she went beyond that by helping us along the way, reviewing our contracts, recommending vendors and making sure we were on schedule. The day of our wedding was smooth and easy. Everyone commented on what a calm bride I was, but in reality, it was because we had Uyen on our side and we didn’t have to worry about anything. There wasn’t any point in the day we had to ask about anything, we just went with it. Our friends were so impressed by her work and her utility belt; they started referring to her as the Wedding Woman.

Uyen is such a great person to have as an event coordinator. We could not have done this with out her. We booked Uyen one year before our wedding (which helped so much). Uyen is so easily going and fun to be around. Her ideas helped to make our wedding day so special. I received so many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful everything was and how Uyen did a fabulous job. Uyen helped to make our wedding day very magical. Thanks so much for all your hard work and help. We love Uyen.

Uyen and her staff were nothing short of a miracle to the success of our wedding. We began our engagement planning well in advance and in fact, have hired a different planner initially. However, the previous planner had different priorities and clearly due to lack of experience in the industry, did not get to deliver as well as we had hoped he would. That said, we knew we had to hire a coordinator that truly knew her/his stuff and could translate all their skills and experience to the biggest day of our lives! We went back to our Catering and Event Director (from our reception venue) and she immediately gave me two names but was insistent that I call Uyen from Sassy Girls first; she had a strong feeling that with the standards my fiance and I have plus our personalities, she thought Uyen can work wonders for us. Wow! What an understatement that was! The first time we spoke was over the phone and we chatted for hours on end (mind you, this was at 11 pm at night!) talking about the wedding and the qualities we are looking for in a coordinator. She most definitely fit the bill! I discussed everything with fiance and just based on me telling him how good she is with detials, he was immediately anxious to meet her in person. After that first meeting, we knew we were going to book her. She picked up the pieces from the last coordinator and made our lives so simple by constantly and genuinely checking in on us and chiming in on emails with other vendors to give her two cents (which just blew us away -- how well she thinks outside the box). She came on board without making us feel like she was taking over. She definitely still left everything up to our final approval and just always stood by for any support that we may need.

Personally, as a bride, the way she appeased me through different facets of my day is something I will always treasure. There were many times I needed to hear from her how things were going behind the scenes; she kept me worry-free the whole day but still keeping me in the loop of things. There was a moment during the evening that we noticed the card box was gone! The last time anyone saw it was during the cocktail hour. I went to her panicking and she told me that it was already put away under the sweetheart table - safe! Before we could even think of anything, she already had it covered. She truly was a huge relief for me.

My fiance, and husband now is beyond words in all the positive things he wants to say about Uyen. He met with her more than I did during the last two weeks bofore the wedding and he told me just how fast she can change hats! One minute she's thinking like a planner, the next minute she's the electrician, the next she was an interior designer, the next she was caterer - you name it, she got it!

Our only regret was not hiring her from the get go. She was definitely worth every penny we paid her. She worked tirelessly and always with a smile -- she truly gained our respect and admiration. Hiring he was by far one of the best decisions we made in planning our big day.

After my first meeting with Uyen, I knew I had found my wedding coordinator.
Indian weddings are multiple days of mass confusion and ceremonies on top of ceremonies. I did a lot of research and interviews to meet a coordinator that I could click with—and I am so thankful that I met Uyen. She is an amazing coordinator handling everything perfectly and truly a master mind in putting our wedding together so beautifully.

All of our relatives from across the globe raved about her. There is no way that we could have planned such a flawless and beautiful event without Uyen by our side.

She was super organized and always prepared. She was very creative and always made the best suggestions. She asked potential questions and issues that I had not even considered. She responds to my all my endless emails quickly. She negotiated well and was very trust worthy. I cannot rave enough about her. I can make a HUGE list of all the ways that Uyen is amazing, but honestly, there are not enough words to describe her. She is not just a coordinator, she is a friend: someone who has your back, who helps you put everything together, someone who will be your partner in coordinating everything.

To be truthful, at the start, my fiancé refused to hire a coordinator because he thought it was a “waste of money”. I really had to twist his arm to cave in, but the first words he said to me as we left the wedding was: “Good call on hiring Uyen, best decision.” Ha ha. At least he learns quickly, “the wifey is always right!!”

Despite the hours planning and planning, there are always things that will come up on your day. Thankfully, with a competent coordinator like Uyen, you will never know about the behind-the-scenes drama and problems, and be able to focus on what is important—enjoying the day and cherishing the moment.

With this in mind, for any bride searching for a coordinator, my husband and I (and our families) highly recommend Uyen.

Thank you Uyen for everything!!

At least he learns quickly, “the wifey is always right!!”

Despite the hours planning and planning, there are always things that will come up on your day. Thankfully, with a competent coordinator like Uyen, you will never know about the behind-the-scenes drama and problems, and be able to focus on what is important—enjoying the day and cherishing the moment.

With this in mind, for any bride searching for a coordinator, my husband and I (and our families) highly recommend Uyen.

Thank you Uyen for everything!! Read less

I booked Uyen shortly before my wedding as I was getting nervous with all I still had to do. I had a pretty strict budget by this time and Uyen worked with me to get me what she could for the price. She ended up doing just "day of" coordinating (which definitely worked out to more than just the day of) and only the reception (since I had a coordinator at the ceremony site). What can I say. She's a pro! She was asking all sorts of questions I never thought to ask my vendors and she was not only the sweetest and thoughtful thing ever, but she was assertive when she needed to be. My only wish was that I had hired her to oversee the entire thing. I had so many things go wrong (most out of my control) that I really needed someone there to tell the florist that the set up was wrong, or the flowers on the cake were wrong, or they had forgotten to hang the lights and swag, or to provide new directions to my guests when there was a road closure between our church and reception site...etc. It would've been great if we had worked together on the whole thing so she could've known about these things, but from the little time we had before the wedding to get to know each other and for her to get to know my wedding, she did an AMAZING job. The reception site was gorgeous and with so much going on she executed the night beautifully. I will definitely be hiring her for the next big function I throw...and will not spare any expense next time!

I got the week of wedding package with Sassy Girls nine months before my wedding. We decided to get the week of since we had most of our vendors selected before deciding to go with a coordinator. Uyen was always available for all of my questions and her response time was immediate. While I did the negotiations with the vendors, Uyen was still available to look over contracts and make suggestions on how to communicate specifics with the vendors. (However, if you are not comfortable in communicating on your own, get the full package.)

Uyen is also very personable. When we met her we hit it off as if we were old friends. We were put at ease knowing we have someone who is an expert at wedding planning as well as someone who we could get along with.

I got married in July and contacted Uyen in May based on the reviews on wedding wire. We were looking for a decorator and a day of co-ordinator. Uyen had reasonable prices for the package that she was offering. Anyway, Uyen pretty much organized the wedding starting in May in terms of venue decor, linens, lighting, flowers, etc. She was also very familiar with the Indian wedding lingo, culture and clothing. She has a vast database of vendors that she has worked with. Her response time for our emails was pretty much within the hour. Sometimes, we would get emails from her at 1am...and we're thinking my goodness! We planned this wedding while living in NY so Uyen was definitely all that we could've asked for. I am so glad I managed to get my husband on board about her. Everyone in our family loved her as well. All our vendors enjoyed working with her. She had a centralized schedule for everybody and all the vendors knew what and when to do it. We barely heard about any hiccups that were happening if there were any! She also worked with my maid of honor who had a surprise song and guitar performance for us! I love Uyen and I am so glad she was a part of my special day :)
